Space Diaries

This week we started our new term imagining that we have crash landed on an unfamiliar planet. Each day we have been writing a diary entry using a different skill. Here are some of our diary entries.

Inequalities

Today we learnt about inequalities <> and =. We had forgotten which way they went when we compare numbers. We used balances to visualise the symbols. This helped us see that the inequality always ‘chomped’ the larger number. By the end we could solve problems like this: 23 < ? < 50

Bulb Planting

This afternoon we planted some spring bulbs. Hopefully we will see them again soon.
